Hollywood celebrities Seth Rogen and Sarah Silverman both star in an upcoming adult HBO cartoon show that appears to be centered on the theme of replacing Santa Clause with someone who’s neither white nor male.
Called “Santa Inc.” and set to premiere on Dec. 2nd, the eight-episode show stars Silverman as Candy Smalls, a female elf who desires to be the successor to Santa, who’s played by Rogen.
“There have been many Santa Clauses throughout history. Some were loved, others loathed. But the position of Santa has mostly been a white man’s game,” another character points out to Silverman’s character in the show’s trailer.
“Exactly. It’s f–king crazy. Things have got to change,” Silverman’s character replies.
Another scene in the trailer shows what appears to be her coach giving her a rundown of what it means to be a white male.
“Let’s go over what we know. Santa and the board are all male and all white. They play golf, drink, smoke cigars, say things like ‘don’t ever marry your mistress,'” the coach-like character says.

Rogen is an extremely “woke” leftist who’s smeared Republican Sen. Ted Cruz as a “white supremacist fascist,” who’s pro cancel culture and who once bragged about insulting a Republican congressman in front of the congressman’s children.
Naturally, he’s been ecstatic over starring in “Santa Inc.” But when he posted the trailer to his Twitter feed, it received only roughly 13,500 likes, a small amount for a guy who recently got nearly 650,000 likes for showcasing his “rolling tray” invention:

His trailer post meanwhile received nearly 1,000 comments, some of them positive, but most from critics wondering to whom exactly “Santa Inc.” is supposed to appeal.
Even some of his fans who view him as “one of the funniest guys ever” were turned off by the show’s “wokeness.” Folks were also turned off by all the profanity.
Who the F does this appeal too

I love Damn near every movie you’ve ever made and always thought you were one of the funniest guys ever. Sausage party was hysterical. Having said that, boy this looks ultra woke. I’ll pass, but good luck with it

Looks awful and too woke. Won’t be wasting my time watching.

Another “adult” comedy where the jokes are cute characters saying fuck, throwing out of place references to current American politics and they’ll probably get high and drunk at some point. Hilarious.

Some critics specifically zeroed in on the show’s apparent anti-whiteness and how it fits with Rogen’s own anti-white rhetoric.
Last year the Hollywood celebrity, who also sometimes produces his own films, vowed during an Entertainment Weekly interview to make his own movies “less” white.
“I am just actively trying to make less things starring white people. And if I’m succeeding or I’m not, I’m very much looking to have a far more diverse group of writers and directors and actors that we generally work with, because that group is not incredibly diverse, you know?” he said.
“So that’s how I’ve been trying to deal with it, is just to actively take as they would say, anti-racist measures to assure that some work is doing done to acknowledge that Black people are very marginalized in American society.”
It’s basically his belief that Hollywood needs fewer white people — but not including him, apparently. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have accepted the role in “Santa Inc.”
A show not just about an elf who wants to be the new Santa, but wants us to think Santa being white is a bad thing and that’s why she deserves the position.

Santa is too white. Too many white men in Hollywood. Seth Rogen thinks we’re stupid. pic.twitter.com/N0jWsJXHie

Silverman also shared the trailer to Twitter, but she received less blowback and attention, likely because she’s not as “woke” as Rogen and has in recent times shown a willingness to stand up to far-left orthodoxy.
“It’s the absolutist-ness of the party I am in that is such a turnoff to me. It’s so f–king elitist. You know, for something called ‘progressive’, it allows for zero progress. It’s all or nothing, no ‘steps toward. All or f–king nothing. Again, righteousness porn,” she said in a viral video last spring.
“And I’ve been thinking about this a lot, just in general, I just, I don’t know that I want to be associated with any party. I really, I think I don’t want to be associated with any party anymore.”
Rogen appears to be a perfect example of this left-wing elitism …
